WALTHAM, Mass., Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- American DG Energy Inc. (NYSE MKT: ADGE), a leading On‑Site Utility™, offering clean electricity, heat, hot water and cooling solutions to hospitality, healthcare, housing and athletic facilities, today announced that it has reached an agreement today to provide an On-Site Utility solution to the Salvation Army Greater New York Divisional Headquarters in New York City, NY. The project is expected to save the Salvation Army upwards of $850,000 over the full length of the contract.
Under the terms of the agreement, the Salvation Army building will receive 100 kW of combined heat and power ("CHP") equipment and replace existing traditional electric chilling equipment. American DG will sell the associated electricity, chilled water and hot water to the building at a discounted rate to the prevailing utility price. Over the life of the 15 year contract, the agreement will produce revenue of approximately $3,600,000 for American DG Energy.
The newly installed systems include Tecogen Inc.'s 100 kW InVerde® Ultera™ CHP unit. The InVerde uses Tecogen's advanced and proven engine technology, which offers the highest overall efficiencies, significant operating cost savings, ultra-low emissions controls, and practical long-term serviceability. Using Tecogen's patented generator and inverter technology, the units will be able to provide the building with "supplemental stand-by" generation (also called "convenience power") during utility outages, in addition to operating the unit normally when the utility is up.
"Facilities like the Salvation Army are ideal for the on-site utility business," stated Benjamin Locke, Co-CEO of American DG Energy. "By providing electricity, cooling, and heat, the customer enjoys the full advantages of a total HVAC system at a fraction of the price of operating a traditional utility solution and with no upfront installation expense. We are very happy to work with the Salvation Army and hope that successful completion of this project will lead to similar Salvation Army installation sites."
